The heritage of the Pink Kushstrain is a little uncertain, but it’s known to be a relative and possibly an offspring of the legendary OG Kush, one of history’s most popular indica strains. Pink Kush carries on the legacy, delivering a potent body high that’s very effective as medical treatment. The effects are calming and intensely euphoric, with happiness and a powerful case of the munchies. It’s a versatile tool for treating anxiety, depression, inflammation, lack of appetite, migraines and other headaches, mood disorders, chronic pain, and insomnia. The sativa/indica ratio of this strain is hard to verify, but appears to be as low as 10:90, meaning strong physical effects.
THC tests are scarce, but the few that are publicly available suggest fairly high potency, topping 20%. CBD levels are reportedly much lower, less than 1%, so this isn’t an ideal choice for treating conditions that respond to that chemical, including epileptic disorders. The flavor and aroma of Pink Kush are similar, with notes of pine, wood, and flowers. The strain gets its name in part from the pink hairs that punctuate its green nugs. It’s most popular on the legal markets of the Pacific Northwest and Canada.
Medical patients tend to gravitate toward Pink Kush for its overwhelming body effects that work to combat physical pain, migraines, and nausea. Used frequently to overcome stress, anxiety, and extreme nervousness, it’s a great way to calm yourself down and enjoy a carefree day. If used later in the evening, smoking a decent amount of this strain will lull you into a deep sleep.
As if it couldn’t get any better, Pink Kush is also pretty easy to grow, with plants that produce high yields and are resistant to common molds. The only potential complaint about this gal is that it takes 10 to 11 weeks for her to flower, which for some people can feel like an eternity. Cultivate Pink Kush inside or outdoors for a strain that’s robust and great smelling.
